      I am not aware of the transmission mount changing for the '12 Tiptronics.
      Howerver, if you happen to have a diesel with DSG, you'll need a 3-bolt hole mount.

      Got my Stage 1 mount in the mail today. It looks great, and I can't wait to get it installed! (Hopefully it fits )

      Thanks!

      pete,
      i was wondering if BFI could make a polyurethane solution for control arm/ anti lift mounts for the MKV?

      also when do you think the BFI clutch/flywheel kits will be available

      It's a possibility, but not in our development pipeline..
      Too many other projects and parts in development to focus on that.
      Maybe when the platform matures a little more it's something we'll visit.

      The clutch kits are bound to be out in the relatively near future.
      We have a test setup in my 2.5T and it's been excellent.
      A little bit of chatter, but any lightweight flywheel is going to make noise.
      Otherwise, it holds strong under load and has proven to be reliable thus far.

      other than the clutch kits, are there any other parts in development for the 2.5l that we should look out for in the future?

      Nothing 2.5l specific, but we do have Mk5/6 front swaybars in production.
      We're just waiting for production to finish those and they'll be available for sale.

      We sold a few sets of 2.5l mounts in the last several days.
      Where's the feedback at? Speak up!

      I have had a full set of stage 1 on the car for about 25K Car still vibrates a little (I like it). The power you put down is much smoother(hardly any wheel hop) You now can lay down a pretty long patch of rubber LOL

      I see what you did there..
      It's unfortunate H2O effected your order and contributed to an uncharacteristic delay.
      We're a relatively small outfit (contrary to what most think) and our mounts are our most popular product.
      We do our best to stay ahead of demand - particularly around shows - but production can only put out so many mounts.
      If you want high quality, one-off custom automotive products, sometimes you have to wait.

      I didn't slip through the cracks this time? I don't remember having an issue with the time, just the total failure in communication. When I order something on a Friday, understanding it is before a show, I expect some delay. But when I call the shop on Wednesday to check on the order and to find out if the part is in stock, and I am told that MY part is in a box and getting shipped that day, I expect it to ship that day or for a phone call to be placed (at least an email) to explain why it isn't going to happen. I also expect better customer service when I call in, rather than being told that I "slipped through the cracks..." That is just downright poor service, especially when you are not the only game in town for the parts you supply.

      On a side note, everything that I ordered from other vendors during the same two day period, has already arrived. I was informed by email and by phone of the delays, and the ship times promised by them were adhered to. They were also high quality, one-off custom automotive products...

      Hopefully if I have to order from BFI again, the order (at least the service) will go smoother.

      If you were provided incorrect information about when your order would be shipped, I apologize. We're human and mistakes happen. Did anyone intentionally try to inconvenience you or hold up the delivery of your order? Absolutely not.

      As far as other communication is concerned - a link is provided with every sales receipt to track the status of your order and we made it public on our website there would be delays due to H2O weekend and the influx of orders that would be received. The biggest concern of your's appears to be that you were told item X should ship in Y time.
      Outside of there being an internal communication issue with 'Y', I don't see where we fell short in providing the tools and up front information about impending order delays.
      I explained all this over the phone, offered my apologizes for the inconvenience and now I've made it public here. We made a mistake and we'll learn from it.
      If you have any addition concerns, or talking points, please PM me or email pete@blackforestindustries.com

      Respectfully,

      This is all it would have taken over the phone to save my business. I appreciate it now, even if it is too late for the mounts.

      Here's good reason to replace your trans inserts.. 130k of daily driving means your stock insert is smooshed.
